Mr Shah, If head covering give such freedom and "relief" plus weather protection, why don't men wear them? (And exactly how does something add beauty by completely covering it up?) I'd like to see men wearing solid black from head to foot in the heat of the roasting desert. Then I might believe hijab is a religious thing instead of an oppress women kind of thing. Let's see YOU (no pun intended) wearing a solid blue burqa like ones on the women in Afghanistan. Tawny 2011-02-12 12:21:05 592
Brother Sisters beauty and appreciation lies in covering and not by exposure. Moreover its the Message of Holy Quran and teachings of Prophet Mohammad(PEACE AND BLESSINGS UPON HIM) that females should have Hijab when they go out of their dwellings. Being a Muslim it is mandatory for people on Universe to follow the teachings of ALLAH RABBUL IZZAT Liyakat Shah - Author 2011-02-15 23:45:40 598
